I really dig this tune, the only version i've heard is on birth of the dead I believe, (from the box set). Is there any live versions available here in the archive? I'm not real sure of the origins of this song, anybody have any insights?

Pain In My Heart
Lyrics: Naomi Neville
Music: Naomi Neville

Pain in my heart, treating me cold
Where can my baby be, Lord no-one knows
Pain in my heart, won't let me sleep
I wake up at night in misery, yes I do
And when my days begin to get rough
Why don't you come back, come back, came back baby
I've had enough

Pain in my heart, won't let me be
Oh I wake up at night in misery
Pain in my heart, treating me cold
Where can my baby be, Lord no-one knows, no they don't
And when my days begin to get rough
Won't you love me, love me, love me baby
Cause I've had enough

Pain In My Heart was the title track of Otis Redding's debut album, released in 1964. Songwriting credit goes to Naomi Neville, which was a pseudonym used by the great New Orleans musician and songwriter, Allen Toussaint. Irma Thomas recorded a different version of the song, Ruler Of My Heart.
